Webster defines a dream as a strongly desired goal or purpose In The Great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald Jay Gatsby feels exactly that Gatsbys dream is to get back the love of his life Daisy who he lost 5 years before because he was too poor The only problem was that things had changed For one Daisy had already married She was married to a man named Tom Buchanan Also Gatsby wasnt an innocent war hero anymore Gatsby had started an illegal business most likely selling alcohol which was illegal back in the 1920s But in the book Gatsbys dream gets crushed The book never really defines who or what crushes his dream but I believe that Gatsby himself crushed his dreamAlthough I believe that Gatsby ruined his own dream others may believe that Tom Buchanan ruined Gatsbys dream to have daisy fall in love with him After Gatsby and Daisy broke up 5 years before the book took place Daisy married a man named Tom Buchanan Some might say that this action caused Gatsbys dream to be ruined At one point in the novel Fitzgerald describes Gatsby Jay Gatsby had broken up like glass against Toms hard malice148 This could mean that Gatsby was torn apart by how wicked Tom was being toward Daisy After Gatsby learned of Daisy marrying Tom he found out that Tom was already having an affair during the honeymoon His real mistress however was Myrtle When Gatsby heard of Toms affair he was insulted by how Daisy could stay married to man who she knew was cheating on him However throughout the book there are times where Daisy either shows or clearly states that she loves Gatsby As he left the room again she got up and went over to Gatsby and pulled his face down kissing him on the mouth You know I love you 116 This is an example of how Daisy shows her
